2. For a long time, the earths early atmosphere was mostly carbon dioxide. Where did this carbon dioxide come from?

  • Meteors entering the earths atmosphere.
  • Dinosaur excriment.
  • The volcanoes.
  • Decomposing plant life.

3. What atoms make up carbon monoxide? Under what conditions is carbon monoxide produced?

  • ONE carbon and ONE oxygen atom. When there's not enough oxygen available when fuels burn.
  • TWO carbon and ONE oxygen atom. When there's not enough sulfur available when fuels burn.
  • ONE carbon and ONE oxygen atom. When there's not enough carbon available when fuels burn.
  • THREE carbon and THREE oxygen atoms. When there's not enough oxygen available when fuels burn.

4. What are particles of carbon otherwise known as and what kind of pollution do they cause?

  • Carbon particles and they cause acid rain.
  • Particulate carbon and they cause soot.
  • Carbon particles and they cause soot.
  • Particulate carbon and they cause acid rain.

5. Describe how nitrogen dioxide is produced when fossil fuels are burnt.

  • Fuels in a car engine burn and create nitrogen monoxide, then once the carbon monoxide is in the air it will react with oxygen to give nitrogen dioxide.
  • Fuels in a car engine burn and create nitrogen monoxide, then once the nitrogen monoxide reacts with more nitrogen in the atmosphere is turns into nitrogen dioxide.
  • Fossil fuels are burnt and creates nitrogen. The nitrogen reacts with oxygen in the air and creates nitrogen dioxide.
  • Fossil fuels burn and create excess nitrogen so it's put in a combiner and turned into nitrogen dioxide for experiments.
